Cook County West

Liberals never seem to learn, even from each other:


So something like a 66% sugar tax? Let's see if Seattle voters can sway their politicians like Cook County voters. They are way more liberal on the west coast though. They may like high taxes.

The city of Seattle has tried lots of stupid things, including trying to levy a tax on high income earners ($250k single/$400k married) and the courts told them to go fuck themselves with a cactus. Seattle also has a genuine socialist on their city council, who makes Ed Burke seem reasonable.

Meanwhile, their attempt to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour is going just as you'd expect.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/06/26/new-study-casts-doubt-on-whether-a-15-minimum-wage-really-helps-workers/?utm_term=.ce3e2448cf86

But yes - it basically is Cook County West. Their cost overruns for things like their light rail and the viaduct replacement tunnel, and wanting "free community college" for everyone and other dumbass things are the reason why Amazon started looking elsewhere. And real estate there is out of control - when it makes the Gold Coast/Lincoln Park look inexpensive, then you know you're fucked.

Having said that, Seattle PD was nice and professional when I lived out there.

So used to buying everything thru Amazon,
they might not care as long as it's delivered
to their front door. Very depressing in Seattle.
Starbucks i.v.'s, Mountain Dew's for energy.
Didn't Seattle generate some real low down
death metal and grunge bands?
Major attraction is Sea-Tac airport. The Mariners
are really off season fisherman. Citizens mesmerized
by Jeff Bezos, osmosis style.
I think this is a backdoor tax on Seattle to compensate
for incentives and tax breaks given to Amazon.
Florida just might consider a tax on frozen iguanas.

The Seattle sugar tax was initially proposed by Mayor Ed Murray who had to resign over his fifth child abuse allegation and was replaced by a LGBT woman. The council has nine members with one voting no, another not present. Everybody involved is a democrat, and one further identifies as a Socialist Alternative (Trotskyist Marxist).

They're always called liberals, but the truth is they're communists. Back in the 50's or 60's,the president of communist Russia said they would take over America and never fire a single shot.
Americans would never accept a "communist" government,but change the name to "liberal democrat" and it is happening! If this communism isn't stopped, you can bet your ass your "rights" will be dependent upon the whims of government!
Protest them and get shot. Liberals should be treated like children, not elected to public office.

Democrats love to tax you! And they are dumb enough to keep voting them in! Just like Illinois! See the parallel? Listen to them (democrats) on CNN,MSN, and Main stream media, they come out against the tax reform and basically say they want you dumb voters to pay more taxes, and you keep voting them in?

I somewhat surprised the politicians didn't let them show the amount of tax included in the price. If you knew how much of the price of a gallon of gasoline was taxes (federal, state, local, sales, gas), you would be shocked.

Wait. Cannabis is legal in Seattle. Isn't the cannabis tax that all the dopers and drug tourists are so happy to pay taking care of all their government's tax shortfalls? Why more increases?


Besides, it's not a tax, the sign says it's a "sugar recovery fee."

Let's get our facts straight.

I noticed that Barack Obama is going to be the first guest on David Letterman’s new show. You would think that Obama would want to distance himself from somebody with a record of sexual harassment like David Letterman. He’s nothing more than a mean spirited, boring, lecherous old man now. Why would Letterman interview Obama? I know that he’s an ex-president but I still remember when he was a clueless and corrupt State Senator from Chicago’s south side.

Here's how mentally f--ked up those jaggoffs in Seattle are: ......
---> Years ago when the idea of raising money for Road Repairs, etc -- by Taxing Cars for each mile driven instead of only by a Gasoline Tax -- was first being floated by their democrat masters, the morons interviewed for a newspaper article were all for it. Every one of the moonbats said that they weren't being taxed enough! <----

While liberal and far too many homeless 0lus the protests, I'll take Seattle over Chicago. I hated living in Chicago, found very few things to enjoy. Crime everywhere, limited to 4 neighborhoods worth living in. The department was a joke. It's far from perfect here in Seattle but I've made it work. Plus no residency.

Tax criminal behavior. Make them pay each time they get arrested, in prison they work, no more liberal nonsense, make them pay back society. If, like our shitheads, have never worked a day in their lives, then they are permanently banned from receiving entitlements. Hell, the answer to all this country's financial problems could be solved by one thing. Drug test all welfare recipients, piss hot, no more free living. We would save billions a year. But the Democratic party would never let that happen.

If retailers would list prices that would be WITHOUT the layers and layers of taxes and regulation compliance costs - including 15 dollar minimum wage - the people would be revolting against the corrupt communist progressive liberal democrats that have imposed this garbage upon us all. It would take less than two weeks of full listings.

Oh, and if ALL taxes and ALL fees and ALL payment demands applied to EBT, we would be involved in a civil war 2 in five seconds.
